This highly focused Connected Autonomous Vehicles Engineering course at Coventry University has been developed in consultation with our impressive network of industry partners, including Jaguar Land Rover and Aston Martin. It also draws on the industrial experience of academics and research activity which covers the major specialisms such as functional safety, optimisation techniques, propulsion systems, vehicle dynamics, human factors, connected and autonomous vehicles simulation and testing
We aim to equip you with the know-how to design and test vehicles that are more fuel efficient, refined and safe, by studying industry desired principles of design, operation, performance, safety and optimisation of automotive systems, as required to engineer a Connected Autonomous Vehicle. This could lead to a career as an automotive engineering specialist in a wide range of engineering, manufacturing, and service organisations.
A global skills shortage continues to ensure engineers remain among the most in-demand professions; Engineering UK predicts 186,000 people with engineering skills will be needed annually through to 2024 to meet demand.
The course has a strong focus on the current demands of the automotive industry and will provide you with an opportunity to gain the skills and knowledge required to be able to start making a positive contribution to the company you work for from day one.
Industry-related projects aim to give you a feel of what the demands and expectations could be at your future workplace, as well as enabling you to practice and apply your skills to real engineering projects. You can also gain practical, hands-on experience in preparing, running and analysing results from experimental testing and numerical analysis.
The faculty enjoys close links with employers in the performance engineering industry, including Red Bull Racing, the Auto-Cycle Union, Lotus Cars, Penske Racing and Triumph Motorcycles, as well global manufacturers Jaguar Land Rover, Prodrive, MIRA, Whale Tankers and BAE Systems.
Coventry University is committed to preparing you for your future career and giving you a competitive edge in the graduate job market. The university’s Talent Team provide a wide range of support services to help you plan and prepare for your career.
